>> Dear Working Group members,
>> During our monthly call last week (see notes at
>> https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/document/d/1yCJUVrTsbnSenuQA0tGQ0rugEwitlyiwATJbIrJpQEs/edit)
>> we discussed the Curator's Choice blog on the Wellcome Images release. Some
>> members felt that it might not be a good signal to actively promote this
>> collection (consisting of public domain material that was licensed as CC-BY
>> following digitisation) at this moment, in light of the ongoing discussion
>> around this topic, as well as the upcoming OKfest session.
>> However, taking a blog offline after it has been published, combined with
>> the fact that it is still an Open Collection (also mentioned on our Open
>> Collections page) would also not be a right signal. After discussing the
>> matter further with Adam Green, we have now added a disclaimer text at the
>> bottom of the blog, stating our awareness of the issue, and inviting
>> everyone to participate in discussing it further at OKfestival:
>> *The OpenGLAM working group would like to add that, although we very much
>> appreciate collections being made available under an open license such as
>> CC-BY, we also value the principle of keep digital representations of works
>> for which copyright has expired (public domain) in the public domain by not
>> adding new rights to them following digitisation. We understand that this
>> is a difficult matter, which has been discussed quite extensively on our
>> mailing list and elsewhere recently. That is why we are organising a
>> workshop at OKFestival entitled ‘Maintaining a healthy and thriving Public
>> Domain – exploring the notion of originality and copyright when digitising
>> analogue works‘. We invite everyone to join in our discussion, so that we
>> can come to a common approach on how to deal with this topic in the future.*
>> Hoping you are all OK with this approach, and looking forward to the
>> OKFest session!
>> Best regards, Lieke Ploeger
